Atkins Wins Professional Bass Fishing’s Forrest Wood Cup http://peppercustombaits.com/atkins-wins-professional-bass-fishings-forrest-wood-cup/ Mon, 14 Aug 2017 06:56:00 +0000 http://peppercustombaits.com/atkins-wins-professional-bass-fishings-forrest-wood-cup/ COLUMBIA, S.C. (Aug. 13, 2017) – FLW Tour rookie Justin Atkins of Florence, Alabama, brought a five-bass limit to the scale Sunday weighing 22 pounds, 1 ounce – the second-heaviest limit ever weighed in the 22-year history of the Forrest Wood Cup – to earn the win at the 2017 Forrest Wood Cup on Lake Murray. Over three days, Atkins weighed in 15 fish totaling 59 pounds, 4 ounces to edge out second-place pro Travis Fox of Rogers, Arkansas, by 2 pounds, 9 ounces and win the $300,000 top cash prize. The tournament featured 53 of the top bass-fishing anglers in the world competing for professional bass-fishing’s world championship.

“When I say I feel like this is what I’m meant to do I don’t mean that in any kind of arrogant way,” said Atkins, who became just the third angler to win the Forrest Wood Cup in their rookie season. “I just went out on a limb of faith this year. I didn’t have the money to fish the full Tour when I started. I had enough money to fish about four events, and I was hoping I would make it. I felt like God had a plan, and that’s what I was supposed to be doing. I just went out there and fished, and today signed off that I was supposed to be there.”

Atkins targeted cane piles throughout the week and the fat blueback herring-eating largemouths that hung around them. He estimated that he had about 60 to 80 waypoints on cane piles he liked, and most of the piles topped out about 8 to 10 feet below the surface, rising up from about 20 or 22 feet deep. The fresher and “bushier” the pile was, the more fish were in it.

“I caught every fish that I weighed in this week on an Ima Little Stick 135 in chrome,” Atkins said. “I fished them on a 7:1 gear ratio Abu Garcia reel with 30-pound-test braid and a 7-foot, 5-inch medium-heavy composite rod. I think the key was being consistent and sticking with the topwater bait. My Humminbird electronics really played a role helping me find the brush and the cane piles. Other guys weren’t able to graph them, but my Humminbird could.

“I still feel like I’m in a dream and going to wake up soon,” Atkins went on to say. “To come out on top and win this tournament really just solidifies that I can fish at this level and I’m supposed to be here. I’m already excited to get the season started next year on Lake Okeechobee.”

The top 10 pros at the 2017 Forrest Wood Cup on Lake Murray finished:

1st:          Justin Atkins, Florence, Ala., 15 bass, 59-4, $300,000

2nd:         Travis Fox, Rogers, Ark., 15 bass, 56-11, $60,000

South Carolina’s Cobb Grabs Lead at Professional Bass Fishing’s Forrest Wood Cup http://peppercustombaits.com/south-carolinas-cobb-grabs-lead-at-professional-bass-fishings-forrest-wood-cup/ Sun, 13 Aug 2017 02:39:00 +0000 http://peppercustombaits.com/south-carolinas-cobb-grabs-lead-at-professional-bass-fishings-forrest-wood-cup/ COLUMBIA, S.C. (Aug. 12, 2017) – FLW Tour pro Brandon Cobb of Greenwood, South Carolina, continued his momentum Saturday at the 2017 Forrest Wood Cup on Lake Murray , the world championship of professional bass fishing, weighing in a five-bass limit totaling 19 pounds, 4 ounces – his second straight day with a 19-plus pound limit. With a two-day total of 10 bass weighing 39 pounds even, Cobb will lead the final 10 pros who will fish Sunday for $300,000 cash – the top award in professional bass fishing.

Anglers began competition Friday in Columbia, South Carolina, with the full field of 53 anglers competing. Tour rookie Justin Atkins of Florence, Alabama, jumped out to the early lead Friday with a 21-pound, 5-ounce limit, with local anglers Anthony Gagliardi of Prosperity, South Carolina, and Cobb of Greenwood, South Carolina, close behind. Saturday, Cobb (39-0) jumped to the top of the leaderboard while Atkins (37-3) slipped to second and Gagliardi (36-1) fell to third.

“This is pretty crazy,” said Cobb, who is appearing in his third-career Forrest Wood Cup after finishing third in 2015 and ninth in 2016. “I’m really amazed, because I had no idea that I had that much weight today. I really thought that I had about 16 pounds and I thought that I’d be in third place. To be leading the Forrest Wood Cup going into the final day – it really hasn’t sunk in, yet.

“Today actually seemed bad,” Cobb continued. “I know 19 pounds doesn’t seem bad, but I kind of got in a bad rotation today. Yesterday I caught between 20 and 25 fish, and I left them biting. Today, I caught seven. I’m hitting around 40 different places, but I’ve got about 20 areas where I’m pretty confident that I can get a bite. The other areas have fish but they don’t always bite.”

Cobb said that all of his fish have come via topwater baits. He said he’s fishing three different hard baits and a fluke, changing things up based on the weather conditions.

“Yesterday I was throwing popping-style baits, and today I fished a couple of places with it and didn’t catch any. I knew they were still there, so I picked up a Yo-Zuri Saltwater Pencil – a bigger pencil-walking bait, but it’s a saltwater size – and I caught a few on it. It’s really a conditional thing.

“I’m really excited to get back out there tomorrow and see if I can finish this,” Cobb went on to say. “I love August fishing and I love high-pressure tournaments – I always have.”

The top 10 pros that advanced to the final day of competition on Lake Murray are:

1st:          Brandon Cobb, Greenwood, S.C., 10 bass, 39-0

2nd:         Justin Atkins, Florence, Ala., 10 bass, 37-3

3rd:         Anthony Gagliardi, Prosperity, S.C., 10 bass, 36-1

4th:         Travis Fox, Rogers, Ark., 10 bass, 35-0

5th:         Bryan Thrift, Shelby, N.C., 10 bass, 33-13

6th:         Scott Martin, Clewiston, Fla., 10 bass, 31-14

7th:         Michael Neal, Dayton, Tenn., 10 bass, 30-14

Bryan College wins Carhartt Bassmaster College Series National Championship http://peppercustombaits.com/bryan-college-wins-carhartt-bassmaster-college-series-national-championship/ Sun, 13 Aug 2017 02:33:00 +0000 http://peppercustombaits.com/bryan-college-wins-carhartt-bassmaster-college-series-national-championship/ Two freshmen from one of the smallest colleges in the field, not only won the 2017 Carhartt Bassmaster College Series National Championship, they dominated it.

Jacob Foutz and Jake Lee, from faith-based Bryan College near Lake Chickamauga in East Tennessee, led all three days, before winning by 5-pounds.

“There was a peace about us all week. We knew it was all in God’s hands,” says Lee.

The young team idled out of the south end of Lake Bemidji each day, through a narrow portion of the Mississippi River into Lake Irving, to catch their fish.

“We made so many laps around Lake Irving, we feared we might run out of bass to catch, but thankfully we never did,” added Lee.

The two freshmen averaged 16-pounds per day, with a winning weight of 49 pounds 15 ounces, and caught most of their fish by pitching black/blue and green pumpkin Strike King tubes on 20-pound line around shallow shaded docks.

 

“We caught a few fish on frogs really early in the morning, but as soon as the sun got up, that bite died fast,” explains Lee.

This is only the third year that Bryan College has been involved in competitive fishing, and Coach Mike Keen says the small school’s President is their biggest fan. “We get tremendous moral and financial support from the college, and our President even had garages constructed for the kids on our team to keep their boats in,” smiles Coach Keen.

The youngsters will now compete in a bracket format against anglers from the top three finishing teams, including John Garrett. He won the bracket format last year, and subsequently gained a berth to the 2017 Bassmaster Classic last March on Lake Conroe.

This year’s bracket tournament takes place 90 miles down the road from Bemidji on Serpent Lake, MN. At its conclusion, on Wednesday, August 16th, one angler will qualify for the 2018 Bassmaster Classic on Lake Hartwell, SC.

Don’t be surprised if it’s a young Lion from tiny Bryan College, they roared loudly and left Bemidji as kings of the jungle among college bass fishing’s very best.

Alabama Rookie Atkins Grabs Lead after Day One of Professional Bass Fishing’s Forrest Wood Cup http://peppercustombaits.com/alabama-rookie-atkins-grabs-lead-after-day-one-of-professional-bass-fishings-forrest-wood-cup/ Sat, 12 Aug 2017 02:03:00 +0000 http://peppercustombaits.com/alabama-rookie-atkins-grabs-lead-after-day-one-of-professional-bass-fishings-forrest-wood-cup/ COLUMBIA, S.C. (Aug. 11, 2017) – The world’s best bass anglers convened on Lake Murray in Columbia, South Carolina, Thursday to kick off the 2017 Forrest Wood Cup, the world championship of professional bass fishing. The three-day event, which awards a $300,000 top prize to the victor, featured a full field of 53 anglers competing today and Saturday before being cut to the final 10 on championship Sunday.

FLW Tour rookie Justin Atkins of Florence, Alabama, secured the early lead after weighing in a five-bass limit totaling 21 pounds, 5 ounces – the largest limit ever weighed on Lake Murray in Forrest Wood Cup competition. Atkins’ limit was enough to edge local favorite Anthony Gagliardi of Prosperity, South Carolina, by just four ounces, who caught five bass weighing 21-1, good for second place.

“Today was really good,” said Atkins, who finished runner-up in the 2017 FLW Tour Rookie of the Year race. “I caught two real quick this morning, then finished out my limit by 7:40 (a.m.). Then I just started running areas from practice that looked like they would be productive and managed to catch a couple of good ones. Around 10:30 I caught a 5-pounder at a spot that I had saved, then I went to another place that I had found that was a little off of the wall and caught a 6-pounder on my first cast there.

“I didn’t want to burn through a bunch of 3½-pounders that could help me later, so I spent the afternoon graphing and looking for more areas, just getting ready for tomorrow.”

Atkins said that he fished just one bait throughout the entire day. Although he withheld specifics, he did say that it was a topwater bait and that he caught 20 to 25 fish throughout the day.

“I’m comfortable catching them on a worm or a few other baits here if I need to, but it was one bait all day, today,” Atkins said. “I’m fishing more of a pattern rather than certain areas or spots.

“I thought I’d catch around 17 pounds, which would have been a good Day One goal,” Atkins continued. “I definitely didn’t think I’d catch more than 20. The lake is fishing a lot better than it has in years past. I’m not planning on doing anything different tomorrow, I’m going to do the same thing and hopefully will have similar results.”

The top 20 pros after Day One on Lake Murray are:

1st: Justin Atkins, Florence, Ala., five bass, 21-5

2nd: Anthony Gagliardi, Prosperity, S.C., five bass, 21-1

3rd: Brandon Cobb, Greenwood, S.C., five bass, 19-12

Day one of the 2017 Forrest Wood Cup is in the books and Justin Atkins jumped into the early lead with an impressive 21-5lbs. After practice most of the anglers had the same thing to say about Lake Murray…. it’s Tough. When the scales closed today two bags over 20lbs followed by two over 19lbs held down the top 4 spots , pretty impressive! There were 30 limits caught by the field of 53 anglers weighing a total weight of 535 pounds.

Here are a few videos from just after the weigh in.
